Two red kites lock talons during a dramatic mid-air battle. One of the birds of prey collided with the other in an attempt to steal food from it.

The food dropped 50ft to the ground, but the red kites continued to grab at each other's tails and fight above the small village of Penuwch in Wales. Photographer Mark Rolph, a retired civil servant from the area, said the pair spiralled to the ground as they battled 'aggressively'.
